In If you will only remember to keep your eyes open… Rosa Luxembourg’s phrases from Letters from prison to her friend Sonia Liebknecht written between 1917-1918 are related to images from a stadium situated in a suburban forest north of Athens. In these letters, R. L. describes with great sensitivity and in great detail the surrounding nature, birds, insects, trees, clouds, “simply life itself”.
During one calendar year, I tried to record through a persistent observation the neglected forest as the seasons changed, keeping always in mind these letters and what I imagined would be her own gaze. Through it, I saw the abandoned stadium as a metaphor for an inner space, a space of transformation, where a change is possible.
